My dear readers, Two weeks ago I told myself I was so sick of school and I was angry that the school year took so long and I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I told myself I was sick of all the graduation melodrama and that I didn’t care much about leaving high school. I told myself I was ready...

Dear lovers, I’ve always loved fire. Not in a “burn the world” pyromaniac type of way, but I’ve always thought fire was immensely fascinating and entirely beautiful. The light, the warmth, the heat, and even the burn, I love it all. I think part of what makes fire so attractive to me...

Dear millennials, I’ve never really liked coffee. I know like 80% of Americans are literal zombies without their morning cup of Joe, but I never got into it. I remember sipping coffee with my dad back when he still read the newspaper every morning and I was small enough to sit on his lap, but...

Dear sheep, It is said that there are three types of people in the world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. For those who failed high school english and don’t understand metaphors: sheep are the docile majority, wolves are people who prey on the innocent, and sheepdogs are those who defend the...

If I were a fictional character, I’d be Ginny Weasley

Kylie Yamada, Feature Writer

Filed under Fictional Characters, Online Only, Wednesday

Who would I be if I was a fictional character? I would probably be a combination of Alina Starkov from the Grisha Trilogy (one of my favorite book series) and Phoebe Heyerdahl from Hey Arnold (because Liz says it works). Alina Starkov is the main character of the book series, and has the unique ability...

Dear Future Claire, Hey, it’s junior year you here. I don’t know where you are right now, or what you’re doing, but I know what I hope you’re doing and where I hope you are, and I know that I hope you’re happy. This is already feeling sort of melancholic, but that’s kind of your whole...
